Queen of the South keeper Lee Robinson keen to make up for worst experience of career


Queen of the South goalkeeper Lee Robinson hopes helping the Doonhamers get their play-off bid back on track against Morton will help him get over his worst moment in football.

Gary Naysmith’s side will attempt to cut the six point gap on the top four in this afternoon’s visit of in-form Ton.

But it was Morton’s last trip to Palmerston in October that left Robinson devastated after the visitors ran out convincing 5-0 winners and the former Rangers shot-stopper is hoping for a completely different outcome this time.

He said: “The last time we played Morton at home it was horrendous. We got beat 5-0 and it was the worst game to be involved in to be honest, it was a horrible day.

“It’s embarrassing, it hurts letting any goal in never mind a 5-0 at home.

“In that game everything seemed to go wrong for us and it was a horrible day because we had been on a good run and had three clean sheets before that game.

“We started well but we couldn’t come back from losing a goal, it was horrible.”

A narrow loss to leaders Hibs last weekend has left Queens six points adrift of fourth placed Falkirk and Robinson insists a victory today is imperative to keep their promotion aspirations alive.

He added: “It’s massive for us if we want to have any hopes of getting into the play-offs.

“Falkirk are six points clear with a game in hand so we if want to be anywhere up there we have to win.

“We played quite well against Hibs last week and I didn’t have loads to do.

“We were disappointed as it would have been a great point against Hibs the way they’ve been going, and we probably would have deserved it.

“It probably shows you how far we’ve come of late that we were disappointed not to take a point against Hibs.”
